ESPN proposes wild deal involving Kyle Schwarber and Chris Sale

At this point, I am sure the idea is nothing but a thought, but what if? With the Aroldis Chapman deal, the Chicago Cubs made it official that anything less than a World Series championship this year would be considered failure. While the Chapman deal added some much-needed firepower to the bullpen, what better way to add insurance could you possibly create than adding a pitcher of Chris Sale's caliber to t ...

Texas Rangers in hot pursuit after Chris Sale

The Chicago White Sox have made it known they are taking offers on ace Chris Sale and that it would probably take at least four or five top prospects in order to get the deal done. However, after a weird incident involving sale prior to Saturday's game, the White Sox ace could be on the move and the Texas Rangers could be a likely candidate. The deal would more than likely require Jurickson Profar and Joey ...

White Sox not looking to move Sale despite “kings ransom” offer

Let's face it. The Chicago White Sox are an average team looking to squeak into the playoffs or at least be above .500 so that Jerry Reinsdorf can write the season up as a win. So to a degree, it would make sense to call the season for what it is (pretty much lost), look at the mostly barren minor league farm system and then plan for the future accordingly, which might include trading guys like Todd Frazier ...

Where the White Sox stand at the break

Well here we are at the All-Star break and while they may not have taken the most traditional route to get there, the White Sox are about where I thought they would be. At present, they sit two games over the .500 mark at 45-43.  They came up one win short of the benchmark I set for them a few weeks ago of hitting the break at 46-42 by losing two of three at home to the lowly Braves to stumble into the brea ...

MLB All-Star Game: Kris Bryant hits home run off of Chris Sale

It didn't take long for the Chicago Cubs to make an impact in the 2016 MLB All-Star Game. In fact, it was just the third hitter of the game.
